Preheat oven to 200°. With a long, sharp knife, make deep slits in the beef to form pockets of different depths. In a small bowl, combine the SPICES and salt. Cut the onion and garlic into small slivers. Stuff the pockets with pieces of onion, garlic, parsley sprigs and some of the spice mixture. Rub any leftover spices over the outside of the roast. Place on a rack in a roasting pan and cook at 200°, allowing 1 hour per pound. You will have perfect rare roast beef. Opening the oven lengthens the cooking time, so try to just look through the oven door! Add roughly 8-12 minutes per pound for medium rare to medium beef, but it is always best to use a thermometer, as ovens differ. Let the beef rest 10-15 minutes, thinly slice and serve with pan juices.
